Abstract: Since Bates, Greif, Levi, Rosenthal and Weingast's 1998
collection Analytic Narratives, historians and political scientists have
argued about their method, which essentially amounts to constructing case
studies in economic and political history by using game theory. The present
article describes their contribution before expanding on the methodological
problems of "analytic narratives" more broadly.
